Linda Epstein (is Taking A Break)
Jessica Russak-Hoffman @HoffmanJessStill waiting for a Jews in Space book. Nu? Can an agent #MSWL this so whoever is writing it can reveal themselves and then I can read it? Thanks.

I probably don't need to say this, but I will: I want ALL THE QUEER THINGS™️in both #MG and #YA Realistic contemporary, historical, speculative fiction, light fantasy, light scifi, mystery, romance, etc... #MSWL
Is it possible for a story to be sci-fi but not too sciencey? I want a YA set in space that's not fantasy but is also not super sciencey. Like, space is just the setting & the world-building doesn't feel intrusive & the story isn't necessarily about that. #MSWL
Something I VERY much want more of: submissions by Jewish people who aren't Ashkenazi! I want to see more stories by/about Jewish #POC, Sephardic, Mizrahi, & Ethiopian Jews. Love stories. Fantasy. SciFi. Humor. Historical. Non-scary mysteries. Literary. Bring 'em all! #MSWL
BTW big #MSWL, in case you all don’t already know this, please send me all your #MiddleGrade and #youngadult #JewishKidLit manuscripts! Particularly interested in anything #queer #fantasy #scifi #romcom #mystery
Linda Epstein @LindaEpsteinHere's the deal: I'll be open to queries from April 1st - June 30th. If I've specifically told you to send me something sooner, then send it sooner (for example the #highlightsjewishkidlit peeps). I'll do a #mswl thread within the next few days. Please RT & let your friends know!
When I open in April, I am looking for MG & YA stories featuring Jewish main characters, by Jewish authors, including realistic contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi, LGBTQ+, romcoms, secular stories, spiritual stories, & especially stories from Jewish people of color. #MSWL
REMINDER: I'll be closed to queries after midnight EST October 31st. I'm currently open only to #YA by #ownvoices & #POC authors & I'm looking for realistic contemporary; magical realism; SciFi; speculative fiction; romantic; feminist; or Jewish. #mswl #WeNeedDiverseBooks
